astrohacksinlasvegas Astronomy Hacks @ the 21st Annual Cathedral Gorge star party

Make’s own Katie Dougherty sent a few copies of Astronomy Hacks to the Las Vegas Astronomical Society, and she heard back from Geary Keilman, the President of the group. Sounds like the books made it into good hands!

Here are the names and some pictures of the winners of the Astronomy Hacks books you generously donated to our 21st Annual Cathedral Gorge Star Party.

Astronomy Hacks winner Alex Gonzales
Astronomy Hacks winner Douglas Barlow (he won two of the books)
Astronomy Hacks winner Ron Levandoski (sorry no picture)
Astronomy Hacks winner Rick Brashears (sorry no picture)
The ugly guy with the black shirt and shades is me.

Thank you for supporting our star party and publishing such a great astronomy book for beginners.

We’re really glad to hear you all liked the book! – Astronomy Hacks (order now at the Maker store)

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
